In its present model, YouTube’s implementation of the real-time lyrics requires customers to drag up the center tab of the “Now Enjoying” display screen. Lyrics are then displayed in easy-to-read textual content, and because the tune progresses, the related line is highlighted in daring — making it straightforward for customers to sing alongside.
If you happen to’re nonetheless unclear about what this real-time lyrics function entails, it basically showcases the lyrics in sync as it’s performed again on the app. For a very long time now, YouTube Music customers have needed to depend on paid third-party providers (like MusixMatch) to allow real-time lyrics assist. As soon as this function rolls out to the broader subset of YouTube Music customers, this workaround will now not be required. That being mentioned, it stays unclear presently whether or not Google will limit the real-time lyrics function to its paid consumer base.
YouTube Music’s chief rivals — Spotify and Apple Music — acquired this means a very long time in the past, leaving YouTube Music and Amazon Music as the main music streaming platforms within the West to not have the flexibility to point out real-time lyrics.
